Army's Iraq Work Assailed by Briton

Army's Iraq Work Assailed by Briton: "n an article published this week in the Army magazine Military Review, British Brig. Nigel Aylwin-Foster, who was deputy commander of a program to train the Iraqi military, said American officers in Iraq displayed such 'cultural insensitivity' that it 'arguably amounted to institutional racism' and may have spurred the growth of the insurgency. The Army has been slow to adapt its tactics, he argues, and its approach during the early stages of the occupation 'exacerbated the task it now faces by alienating significant sections of the population.'"
